Well, because this, no.
Yeah but what if?
Well, because this, no.
LOOK YOU GREAT BIG VACUOUSLY IGNORANT TOSSPOT JUST NO!!1!!
Be very afraid.
"A scheme that is durable and will be able to be evidenced forever..."
No buses for three hours and then 50 turn up. Presumably multiple, 50, independent dick heads have been on the 'dark web' buying up bulk e-mail lists along with a, piss poor, ruse template and lists of open relays. Set phasors on stun and launch the scripts..... Profit!
It can't be the same person... can it? I mean what sort of dick head sends sends the same message from multiple sources 50 times expecting me not to notice something strange could be going on and then does the same thing every day for a week... because I did not respond to the first 50?
Now I have 50 individual dick heads a day telling me they have hacked my webcam and I'm "I don't care about your shit English but I don't have a fucking WebCam!" prior to deleting the messages and blocking CIDRs via IPTables.
I mean why not try to sell me a WebCam instead when your hackware noticed I did not have one or does that only happen if I buy a WebCam and no longer need one... I stop getting blackmail and the advertising guys move in to take up the slack?
Unfortunately some people must respond to this sort of rubbish because... level playing field or something.
Oh Dear. Looks like that one is going to time out.
Oh Fuck I am so Fucking Stupid.
Looks like they have all fucked off.
So Dominic Cummings gets to smear the NHS Logo over his Vote Leave Shit and nothing happens but....
Linux Haters can Fuck off as Well.
If I thought about it and wanted to play nice then if my Bank wanted to scan my ports when I landed on their Login page then they can pop up a message saying something like.
For added security if you are a customer about to log in to your account we would like to perform an external port scan in order to check that your computer has not been compromised. If we find anything suspicious then we might not allow you to Log In and ask you to contact us.
Once you have Logged In we will perform an internal port scan to once again verify that your computer has not been compromised. If we find anything suspicious we may lock your account and ask you to contact us.
If you agree to this then please click Accept to log in. If you do not then please click Reject. You will be redirected to your Home Page.
Of course the above is not going to happen because if they get it wrong they have to accept liability for it.
If I want my ports scanned I can ask, give permission, for someone with an appropriate and legitimate service to do so.
I do not need some dweeb dropping in on my open ports saying they are or appearing in my logs as being some sort of security scanning service.
I've never had one of the twats e-mail me to to warn me that I might have a security problem. I can only conclude that the service is for themselves or the data is sold on to third parties for profit.
That's wear and tear on my equipment and uses up my bandwidth along with adding to my electricity bill so they can fuck off into IPTables.
OK Downvoters. The lack of logic goes like this.
Qualcomm wants Intel's Blueprints. Qualcomm's present kit performs better than Intel's. Perhaps Qualcom's prior iteration performed just as badly as Intel's current product and did so in *exactly* the same way.
If Qualcomm's prior iteration had IP protection and they can demonstrate such similar or preferably exact behaviour then they might have good reason to ask for some blueprints.
Some background: Apple has been using a mix of Qualcomm and Intel baseband chipsets in its recent iPhones, without any differentiation that would be evident to fans other than Qualcomm-powered handhelds performing better than those with Chipzilla's modems.
Why are Qualcom so intent on finding out how to do it wrong?
Fine... Have it your way but you have just proved my point. Neither I or anyone else would be able to easily tell which zero you removed.
Anyway my methodology is also much more secure than yours since you can only remove one of five zeroes whereas I have six places where I can add a zero.
Sometimes I form an opinion based on the first couple of paragraphs of an article and immediately jump to the comments to rubbish it.
Sometimes I form an opinion based on the first couple of paragraphs of an article and immediately jump to the comments and read them to see who is also rubbishing it.

Whilst, in this case, he is making perfect sense the submission will be interpreted by non IT inclined people, MPs, as meaning more google-analytics and survey-monkey.
Let me just do that for my raspberry pi.
Looks like I need Certbot for Debian Stretch...
Err... need to do something about backports...
Now we have to Dick about with 'clarity' of the instructions. Dick Dick Dick..
sudo apt-get update
Reading package lists... Done
W: GPG error: http://ftp.debian.org/debian stretch-backports InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 8B48AD6246925553 NO_PUBKEY 7638D0442B90D010

Looks like that is fucked then.
LetsEncrypt - - - - LetsNotBother
... and don't give me no PEBCAK.
I worked out your stupid instructions and it fell over.
... and don't tell me the fault lies with Debian or RPi
If you tell me to use someone else's shit to use your shit you better make sure the other shit works with your shit,,, and my shit.
You may consider this to be my bug report.
FFS. Falls over on a Public Key Error.
Hopefully the opt-in is GDPR compliant.
Anyway as I have previously mentioned all of your programming languages are self ego serving undecipherable wank, and fuck off with your 'once you know one you can deal with them all', that get compiled down through layers of shite to shite.
I've got an EVO 250GB SSD.
Again... Can I define a variable record and save an array of it to what is basically memory? Can I fuck. I have to use someone's flavour of a Shitty Base and everyone has a different opinion about which Shitty Base is the best Shitty Base and the syntax used to set it up and access it.
Thank fuck for Global Warming. Unfortunately...
The Dolphin is slightly pissed off that it evolved on a planet that became infested by Idiots.
This is likely to be the kit used by TalkTalk for their StalkStalk,
It is also likely to be the kit used by TalkTalk and other ISPs should they get around to implementing Internet Connection Records as mooted in the IPAct.
ISTR TalkTalk dropping a clanger by suggesting in their customer forums that the equipment was maintained by and remotely accessible to Huawei's engineers.
Never mind that the system was illegal because, and TalkTalk also admitted but later fudged with The ICO even though the evidence was smeared all over website logfiles, it was monitoring for and visiting below top level URLs.
Now people are suggesting that there might be Security Risks.
Does the Bear wipe its Arse with the Rabbit?
So if its not on speaker phone and I'm in even light traffic then the other person cannot be heard at all.
Dude... You may not know but faffing about with your mobile phone whilst driving qualifies you for a stupid award plus your local Constabulary might slap you with an on the spot fine and put a couple of points on your license.
YMMV if you are not in the UK.
Fuck... I had to look that one up and became concerned that Capita would gain responsibility for Children learning something like word association with the result that they all end up speaking Capita Management Buzz Speak.
Having delved deeper...
... Yes it is a .pdf.pdf file but What The Actual Fuck is that?
Perhaps as a result of not being a Parent I could be missing some of the subtleties assuming there are any, Jub puts in an appearance, but even so I cannot see how the involvement of Capita will improve the situation.
I started out with the anticipation that this might start from the premise that sometimes it is good to make mistakes but recognise that when AI is used against Humans such mistakes might be quite damaging.
I got as far as, my dawning expectation, Men and/or Women buying socks or pantyhose and an almost subliminal glance at what looked like a graph with a blue shape and a red shape on it and instantly reached the conclusion that the author was some sort of SEO Cookie Spawning Marketing Twat who should just chain themselves to an Estate Agent and go throw themselves in some deep water somewhere on top of the rest of the dross that serve no purpose other than to waste my oxygen.
Perhaps someone else who has read the full article can advise me as to why I might be wrong. Try not to let the possibility that I am not interested stop you from doing so.
Being a non smart phone user I thought that this might be a warning of some virusy thing but... It turned out to be click bait.
However if I were to be a smart phone user I would be telling those responsible to take their notch and fuck right off with the repulsive blemish.
I would also tell those trying to find excuses for the wart to go fuck off as well.
I was forced to Google this...
When Essential debuted the first-ever notched display on the PH-1, it was a bold, divisive statement about smartphone design.
No!!11!! Just Fuck Off.
With the recent trend of smartphones opting for full-view or extra-wide or whatever you want to call it displays and cutting down on bezels, the notch was really an inevitable evolution.
No!!11!! Stop insulting Darwin or at least let Darwin take its course.
"Ooooo. I see you have a notch phone."
"Yes. Bow down before its Superior Notchiness."
"Still got your Google Glass stored in your Sock Draw?"
And that’s really the issue at heart, because not long after Essential and Apple made notches neat, everyone else hopped on the bandwagon and ruined it. After all, there are few things worse than running into someone and realizing you are wearing the same clothes. What a bummer.
Wait... This is Gizmodo? Maybe I missed the <sarc> tags. Are they at WeboRrhea3?
... Glad I missed that bandwagon.
"Oooooooo. Yooooou've got a 'Notch Phone'."
"Is it still under contract?"
"Look. Just Fuck OFF!"
"Mark of the Beast LOL... Noooo Don't hit me have some Beers as a consolation."
To further distance itself from suspicions that this is a reaction to the GitHub furore, GitLab pointed out in its announcement that it has maintained a secondary GitLab.com site, containing some 200TB of Git data, on the Google Cloud Platform using GitLab's own Geo mirroring technology for a "few months".
I appear to have acquired 4TB of local spinning storage as a result of a DWP error in my favour. I have fuck all idea what to do with it but, for the moment, I appear to have 3TB of unpartitioned space spare. OK it's sitting on the end of an ADSL line plus I switch the computer off when I go to bed.
It should not be beyond the classical stupidity of the Idiots involved to fuck up some script in Ruby, Twat or Python such that I can donate some storage. Stick some BlockChain on it as well for brownie points...
Don't forget "Cloud is Someone Else's Computer".
Try not to Wank It Up.
Don't bother fining the companies involved. The Tea and Muffin ICO stick the Directors in front of a Judge. The Judge ticks the Criminal Offence box. The Chocolate Tea Pot Companies House disqualifies the Directors and they are unable to set up another company. Did I miss anything?
